Lex Laser Saves The Galaxy, Again Kickstarter

A new Kickstarter explains developer Defiant Mouse's need for $65,000 to create Lex Laser Saves The Galaxy, Again, a tactical RPG they say is specifically designed for busy people who may need to tend to a crying baby or answer the bat-signal at a moment's notice. This team of MIT Game Lab hopes to release the game for Windows, Linux, and OS X by the first half of next year. Here's a description:

Lex Laser is turn based. There are no twitch elements to this game.

Most tactical games rely heavily on numbers to express their core concepts. A tough creature will have more hit points, and the only way to deal with that is to do more damage. In Lex Laser, most foes just take one hit, but there are lots of them.

Lots and lots of them.

Your challenge is to deal with your enemies quickly, before they overwhelm you. At higher difficulties, your challenge is to deal with your enemies efficiently, before you run out of ammo. You do this by choosing the right weapon for the situation, and placing your shots carefully. If you are only destroying one enemy per turn, you are probably falling behind.

The result is a blend of tactical combat game and puzzle game.
